This book is the result of workshops carried out as part of L’Odyssée Artistique des Enfants, an event that brought together 12 artists in 12 university hospitals across France. It’s a fictional account of Camille, a child suffering from a rare disease. He falls asleep wherever he goes. Where many would see this as a weakness, he sees it as a strength. For him, it’s an opportunity to escape into different worlds, full of adventure and epic encounters. Along the way, Camille encounters children and people with disabilities that are visible at times, invisible at others.
